Betsey Johnson staged a riotously fun fashion show for Spring/Summer 2015.The show was a humorous riff on marriage punctuated with "Pre-Nup"tee shirts and rouged nippled drag queen Sharon Needles marching down the runway in the final show-stopping wedding dress.

Johnson's friends walked the runway adding camp to a show that was already whacked: "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Camille Grammer, SoulCycle instructor Stacey Griffith, and Willam Belli from "RuPaul's Drag Race."

Johnson is a new player in the bridal business and she should be. Her dresses are amazingly fun and great choices for brides, bridesmaids and Mothers of the bride who are not afraid to party. The dresses were candy-colored, frothy and fun and just the thing for the bride who views her wedding as a celebration, not just a ceremony.
